Thank you for donating to the Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive Fundraiser! As the new school year begins, students will begin their first few weeks distance learning at home instead of returning to class. As a result, students will need more school supplies to complete assignments in the classroom and at home. For many of the Communities In Schools families, purchasing school supplies for their chldren is a financial burden and now with extra supplies needed for home, the burden is even greater. The Communities In Schools Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive will help to alleviate the financial stress of back-to-school expenses this year.
Your donations will help purchase things like Chromebooks for students. Last spring, many students did not have access to devices at home and although they were able to check-out technology, some had to share a device with their siblings. This made it difficult for them to complete assignments or log into virtual classrooms.
Students also need things like scissors, highlighters, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners and composition books to complete their homework. Thanks to our annual Stuff The Bus School supply drive, these back to school needs will easily be filled for thousands of students throughout greater San Antonio.

The Communities In Schools’ (CIS) Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive is one of city's largest school supply drives that serves thousands of under-served students and families. Many of these families are below the poverty line and cannot afford all the supplies their children need to start their school year. The funds raised through this event will be given to over 100 CIS partnering schools (elementary-high school) across 12 school districts to purchase supplies for any student in need at that campus. The Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive helps to alleviate the stress of back-to-school expenses and allows students to focus on their education with the tools they need to be successful.
